A couple in Massachusetts has produced a thirty-second television commercial warning that if homosexual “marriage” is legalized in the nation, it may lead to the lifestyle being promoted in public schools.
“If gay marriage happens here, schools could teach that boys can marry boys,” the ad begins, which is airing in Washington, Maine, Maryland and Minnesota — states that all have homosexual “marriage” amendments on the ballot this election.
The commercial is narrated by David and Tonia Parker, who explain that in their state of Massachusetts, where same-sex “marriage” is legal, their young son was subjected to homosexual indoctrination in the classroom.
“After Massachusetts redefined marriage, local schools taught it to children in second grade, including the school our son attended,” David Parker states. “The courts ruled parents had no right to take their children from class, or to even be informed when this instruction was going to take place.”
Parker is referring to an incident in 2006 where his son came home from school with a book entitled King and King, which depicts two crowned male rulers kissing on the cover. The story is about a prince who goes looking for a princess to wed, but ends up choosing another man to be his spouse.
After challenging the school in federal court along with another couple, a district judge came down in favor of the school, stating that “diversity is a hallmark of our nation,” which “includes differences in sexual orientation.” The First Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the decision.
“If [this legislation] is approved, same-sex marriage could be taught in local … schools, just as it was in Massachusetts,” Tonia Parker warns. “Don’t make the same mistake and think that gay marriage won’t affect you.”
The ad, entitled “Parents Have No Rights,” has different versions specific to the amendments being considered across the nation.
